“I wanted to produce a series in which highlighted some of Nottingham’s creative community, providing insight and inspiration for listeners, particularly for aspiring creatives of African-Caribbean heritage. Whilst it was still important to still speak about racism, it was also important to give space for discussion outside of it - a space where they could speak passionately about what drives their creativity. The experiences of black people are not monolithic and our identities are much more than the struggles and suffering of racism.”

“We are really excited to launch this podcast. It highlights the experiences of some of the most passionate drivers of creativity in Nottingham. Starting with the programme Saziso has designed for us, we aim to create a culture of investing in, listening to and amplifying marginalized voices at City Arts. We will do this by working with artists that reflect the diversity of our city.”
